I’m pretty sure this is the first release of this particular label for the mid tier signature range. My media sample also reflects the previous word heavy labeling while the bottle image has the new, map-based. A good look for the new livery, I must say.
Jacob’s Creek, Barossa Signature, Shiraz, Tempranillo, Barossa, 2016
The American and French oak maturation quite prominent with chocolate and coconut dominance, before plum, blackberry and dark cherry fruits with green olive herbal underscores. Oak sweet on the palate too, with coconut/chocolate before a slightly warm, polished medium-full body. The tannins are astringent, somewhat strangling the dark cherry and spiced plum fruit. The tempranillo gives the trademark Barossa shiraz a pleasant twist, but it does speak of place. Definitely an option for (obvious) food pairing with a paella or bbq meats.
